It's beautiful...can't wait to see it framed. This one has tugged at me several times. It's from a magazine?

Thanks for all of the eye candy over the last few days. It makes me motivated to get some of my pieces stitched and framed.

Oh Angela - I love it. I never gave this sampler much of a second glance, but now that I see your pictures, I think that I'm going to have to stitch it sometime soon.

Michelle said...

So gorgeous, I love how you finished it!!!!!

I am loving your blog name! I love all your cute pug pics. My In-laws have had two different pugs. Polly was a sweetheart and would let you hold her like a baby and Staley was a little feisty and do not even think of getting close to her when she is chewing on a pig ear!! Thanks for the Ina recipe suggestion, I'm going to give it a try.
